Replacing Parts while preserving Mates between model Mate Connectors (Standard Content)
I'm trying to do a direct replacement of a Standard Content model with a model of our own (it is in relation to the improvement request I made here: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/12046/custom-standard-content). I figured, in the mean time, I could use the Standard Content model to put in as "place-holders", since all of the mates are created and the orientation of everything makes it nice. Problem is the mates always go red. I've tried modeling a simple washer like what is used in Onshape to figure out what I was doing wrong. Even made sure the features appeared the same. Same extrude symmetry, "Near" & "Far" mate connectors and their orientations, and size. Nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
